1 = yep you can no worries there
2 = No not at all
3 = The 150% accurate way you can tell the difference is by the wattles and helmuts as the males are always much larger and its 110% accurate. Some chook knob spankers say to listen to their noise sidesplit.gif . but that is not accurate or even sensible but that's chook people for you :lol: :lol: :lol:
